The images below are posted on the photoalbum of SELAS Caving Club, Greece, with Greek descriptions. I have translated the texts below each image. Clicking on the images will take you to the photoalbum and a larger image.

No borders: Methodios' T-shirt was emblazoned with the logo "no borders"... Looks like he knew something we didn't!
